Tile and sandstone roofs and the cupola of the Church of the Divine Savior glow in the warm late afternoon sun in Carmona, one of the most charming little corners of southern Spain. At nearly the same latitude as my previous upload, but two weeks earlier, almost 4,000 miles (6,400 km) to the east, and about 50º F (27.8º C) warmer.

"Carmona is a town of south-western Spain, in the province of Seville; it lies 33 km north-east of Seville. It is built on a ridge overlooking the central plain of Andalusia; to the north is the Sierra Morena, with the peak of San Cristobal to the south. The city is known for its thriving trade in wine, olive oil, grain and cattle, and holds an annual fair in April. Carmona, known as Carmo in the time of Julius Caesar (100–44 BC), was a Roman stronghold of Hispania Baetica. The city was made even more impregnable during the long occupation of the Moors, who erected walls around it, and built fountains and palaces within. In 1247, Ferdinand III of Castile captured the town, and bestowed on it the Latin motto Sicut Lucifer lucet in Aurora, sic in Wandalia Carmona ("As the Morning-star shines in the Dawn, so shines Carmona in Andalusia")." (Wikipedia)

The Church of the Divine Savior (La Iglesia del Divino Salvador) began life as the Jesuit colegio de San Teodomiro in 1617. The current building's construction was begun in 1700 by the architect Pedro Romero el Viejo, and finished by his son, Felix Romero, in 1720. It is a fine example of Spanish Baroque, with its local Andalucían character shining through in its tilework. When the Jesuits were expelled from Spain in 1767, the church was converted first into a royal school, and then, in 1779, into the seat of the parish of El Salvador. In 1983, la iglesia del Salvador de Carmona was listed as a place of cultural interest in the Boletín Oficial del Estado (BOE), and it is one of the many highlights in this remarkable town. (Spanish Wikipedia, my translation)

Cold and very frosty morning covering plants, trees and roofs with a sparkly white coat. The hellebores in the garden were particularly susceptible.
